Forward of the Day: Innocence is Priceless

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered  with names with small American flags mounted on either side of it.

The seven year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the  pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy, and said quietly,  "Good morning Alex."

"Good morning "Pastor, what is this?" he asked the pastor.

The pastor said, "Well, son, it's a memorial plaque to all the young men  and women who died in the Service."

Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque.

Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear,  asked,  "Which service, the 8:30 or the 10:45?"  

Friends are Angels who lift us to our feet when our wings
have trouble remembering how to fly.

-Thanks  for the forward Dad!
